This is the best screensaver ever made!
Very cool looking, I could stare at it for hours. It's constantly evolving so the kaleidoscope of fractals you might be viewing now will be different a few months later as long as you have you internet connection up at all times. I recommend this screen saver to everyone, there are few free screen savers out there that are this visually appealling with out being cheesing or full of spyware. Once you get this, you'll never go back!
